These are bookmarks to be sold at a friends of the library fundraiser later this fall.
The bookmark on the left, the 8-fan, red and white version, is done with Finca cotton perle No. 8. The one on the right, the 6-fan, blue version, is done in embroidery thread. There wasn't enough blue embroidery thread in a bundle to make 8 fans in the bookmark. Maybe 6 fans will work for a shorter book :-)
These are both experiments to see what thread I like working with. The Finca is way nicer than the embroider thread (no surprise there). Neither has been sprayed with starch and ironed yet - must go buy some spray starch. I think I'll do several of these in Christmas colors, red or green.
This fundraiser project has been fun. I never would have tried these bookmarks if I hadn't been searching around for quickie projects. And the recent clapotis was done for the fundraiser too.
